In the salary cap NHL,there are no great teams. Chicago had a great team in 2010. The cap and their success forced them to make major changes. Has Chicago won a playoff series since winning the Cup? The other dynasty in Pittsburgh hasn't come close to the Cup since winning it in 2009. Losing Crosby is a huge blow to the Cup hopes. He will return by the playoffs. No time to form chemistry with Iginla and the other new players. Pitt has lost in the first round twice in the last 2 years. Crosby and Malkin were out in 11. They were both healthy last year when Philly beat them. Those are two teams people point to because they tanked and built themselves back up. Boston won the Cup after Chicago and Pitt. They didn't tank and basically give away seasons.
